It's always a woman who was abused or her close friends that will defend her character. She was mean and tortured him for years.

I have been a friend of Allan's for over 20 years. She wanted to keep his kids from him, well he should have just moved on and enjoyed a nice happy life away from her.

BUT, he was a complete idiot for doing this. His life is over now; his kids will probably need therapy forever to deal with this; his family must be horrified and embarrassed. He was selfish for doing such a thing. His life was moving in the right direction - he had a great job and wonderful girlfriend.

Lesson here guys and gals (yes, woman do flip out too)- just move on and enjoy life. The world is big enough to get away and have a happy life.

Sucks being a friend of his to see this happen to him. SO if you didn't get it in my comment - I am not defending him at all. She was no angel towards him, but Laura and their kids and Allan's family didn't deserve this at all.

Well, Common Sense, where were you when his rights to his kids were taken away last year, where were you when he was caught not once, not twice, but several times stalking and damaging the property of their friends? Where were you when he was dabbling with child porn? Anyone that met and spoke to him for more than 10 minutes could see he was a freak, divoce, married, or not. He could have really used some "common sense" a long time ago. Everyone else had moved on but him. And, if he had such a great job, why wasn't he helping support his kids? Oh, that 's right, he kept quitting his jobs and stood outside with day laborers to make his cash that was kept well hidden from his family. Too bad you're stuck with your bad information and lies he told you.
